Read in August, 2004

Some things have changed. Hopefully girls are stronger and able to tell boys what they want eg surf, not have sex. But maybe I don't know. The chill factor is that these girls are around 13 and most are virgins who really don't know what they are involved in. Most shattering is the end of the book. Tis was the start of drug times, hard drugs. Maybe it's not really for teens, but maybe teens can learn from it. The language is very much of its time and I would imagine that overseas readers would have a lot of trouble understanding much of it.
